Thanks for clarifying my misunderstanding. I was unaware that {-‘e’} didn’t work like other type 5 suffixes that give a noun a non-subject or object reason to participate in the sentence.

It seems to make it COMPLETELY different from any other Type 5.

Why not make it a Type 6 and give it a special rule preventing it from being used with any Type 5?

It's basically not a real option.
